I am having an issue of not getting audio to transmit from Fldigi to my Flex 6500.
Software Fldigi 3.23.12, SmartSDR 1.7.30 on a Windows 10 64 bit computer.

I have Fldigi rigCAT set up for the Flex 6500 and it is reading the frequency ok. When I try and transmit any of the digital modes from Fldigi, it keys the radio but there is no RF output. I do have DAX turned on and I do show TX gain levels in the DAX control panel and the level meter in SmartSDR. The radio keys, red light comes on, but there is no transmit RF audio coming out even though I can hear it in the speaker with Monitor turned on.

Other programs are working ok. I use Dxlabs Winwarbler and WSJT-X and they are transmitting ok so I think I got something set wrong but I cannot figure it out.

Problem fixed. I had to totally uninstall Fldigi and reinstall and now it is working. Apparently a file got corrupted somewhere. Thank you to all that offered suggestions. de ka9cfd
